We are delighted to be once again working with the CLA and Batcheller Monkhouse at the South of England Show. The show is a fantastic event and it’s a great opportunity for us to meet up with our clients, old and new.
On Friday 9 June, the CLA will be holding a breakfast with keynote speaker – The Crown Estate’s Paul Sedgwick.
According to the CLA, “Mr Sedgwick joined The Crown Estate in 2014, initially as Deputy Ranger at Windsor, but since 2021 with additional responsibility as Managing Director of the Estate’s wider rural portfolio of 180,000 acres.
At Windsor, he oversees over 16,000 acres, including forestry, horticulture, tourism, residential and commercial property activities and manages a team of 200 staff, and is a Trustee of The Prince Philip Trust Fund.
A chartered surveyor, he was previously a partner with Strutt and Parker and has managed the Duke of Wellington’s Stratfield Saye Estate and Lord Iliffe’s Estate at Yattendon. He has also been part of the teams to have been awarded the highly prestigious RASE Bledisloe Gold Medal on the Windsor Estate in 2022, and the Yattendon Estate in 2013, for a range of successful diversification projects and a commitment to improving the rural environment.”
At the breakfast, his topic will be: “How can we achieve a lasting balance between food production and nature recovery on the journey to net zero given current land ownership and tenure?”
Please get in touch with us or the CLA if you are a member if you would like to attend the breakfast.
